The recession started 4th quarter of 2007.

Please list the legislation the Democrats passed the first 9 months of 2007 that created this recession.

I keep asking & not a single one of you right whiners can answer.

Since Obama took office with the country losing 750,000 jobs a month, job loses shrank & we have had job growth.

At 20? really, from part time jobs in high school to full time job for a year and a half. That year & a half paying rent & utilities & food,, car? Really?
Bullcrap.
I see you are still making up stuff about me. Why is that.
I bought a multi-unit property at age 21 so 20 doesn't sound unreasonable if you don't make poor & irresponsible decisions like you Democrats do.

Didn't think it would even matter in 2012. Thought more Americans had more sense and Obama would have just been the mistake he was the first time around.

Boy, could you have colored me surprised on election night!

Lack of Trust of Obama and DHS May Kill Immigration Bill
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) doesn’t believe the Gang of Eight immigration bill – which he authored — has enough votes to break a possible filibuster on the Senate floor.
When asked on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday whether the bill has 60 “yes” votes, Rubio replied:“No, and I think even the Democrats would concede that.”
“There’s a few reasons for it, but one of the things we’ve learned over the last few weeks through the open process that happened through the committee process and all the public input that we’ve gotten is how little confidence people have that the federal government will enforce the law,” Rubio continued.
The full Senate will begin considering the legislation, which passed the Judiciary Committee last month on a 13-5 vote, next week.
Rubio, considered critical to the success or failure of immigration reform, is mulling a measure that would put Congress – rather than the Department of Homeland Security — in charge of drafting the border control strategy that is tied to the pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants in the United States.
“We don’t want to be back here in two years, in five years, 10 years dealing with another 5 or 10 million illegal immigrants,” Rubio said.“And so that’s the key. And people don’t trust the Department of Homeland Security to do this job or to come up with a plan that will do the job.”

Republicans prepare to re-defund non-existent ACORN. Again.
Here's an idea. Maybe all the Republicans who are so outraged at government spending that they're willing to butcher said government outright rather than spend another thin dime on programs like "feeding hungry kids" or "making a general attempt to ensure the meat you buy will not poison you" could get together and ask whether we really need a constant stream of meaningless do-nothing bills based on conspiracy theories peddled by charlatans. We could start with asking the folks that introduced these two latest bills, Texas Republicans John Culberson and John Carter.
I know, I know: It's a silly thought. If you got rid of all the do-nothing bills and conspiracy theories, what on earth would Republicans do with themselves?
Alternatively, we need to start peddling our own ridiculous theories. I think the odds are good that we can convince wide swaths of the GOP base that Culberson and Carter are, in fact, merely manatees disguised as humans, put there in an elaborate attempt by the Illuminati to draw suspicion away from the real masterminds of the Agenda 21 plot, a subterranean society of telepathic earthworms bent on reducing humanity to a post-industrial, composting-based society. Those psychic worms slashed my tires, once. I'm sure of it.

Did you know that President Obama's largest campaign donor when he was elected in 2008 was Goldman Sachs? And that, collectively, Wall Street contributed $9.9 million to his campaign?

This sums up O'bama scandals perfectly--The O'bama is unfit to lead--the only problem is his vice president is also equally unfit and more embarrassing.

Finally someone is standing up for "We the people"

Queen Moochelle Demands Obedience to the Throne

Most notable part of the event was an interruption from a protester about 12 minutes into the 20-minute speech. A pro-LGBT rights individual standing at the front began shouting for an executive order on gay rights.

"One of the things I don't do well is this," replied FLOTUS to loud applause. She left the lectern and moved over to the protester, saying they could "listen to me or you can take the mic, but I'm leaving. You all decide. You have one choice."

"real dumb"
All realize you have never had a job. You have your hand out. I worked, worked hard, at more than 1 job. I saved some monies, I boxed groceries, stocked grocery store shelves, checked out groceries, pumped gas, did oil changes, washed cars, mowed grass, bucked bales, drove mowers and balers, delivered newspapers and flyers, washed dishes, shoveled snow, raked leaves, tended bar. Still today I work 12 - 15 hours a week, volunteer at the food bank, deliver meals on wheels, provide transportation when need for my grand kids, and they are grand, hit Jack and Dan's a few times a week for an ice cold Kokanee Gold and BS session, mow my lawn. Currently I am working on painting the trim on our home.
Keep your hand out, that is what you do well.

One more time you lie. You are good at that.
Democrats did nothing, they wanted an economic slow down for the simple reason they wanted something to campaign on so they did nothing. Several posters have pointed this out to you but you are to dense to understand. Just for drill point out a single economic thing that is better under president nobama that is better now than when he took office;
- Home values - No they are lower
- Home sales - No they are still depressed
- More folks on food stamps, Yes 6 million more
- Household income up - No it's down
- Fewer American's paying Federal Income tax - Yes about 6 million fewer

After reading the 911 transcript again, the police and GZ made arrangemnts to meet behind the clubhouse.
So if GZ was just waiting for the police to arrive outside his truck and was attacked, it puts a new light on things.
Also, according to the transcript, Martin spotted GZ and was approaching him while GZ was on the phone with the dispatcher at his house before running away.
Glad there are jurors to hear all the evidence myself.
The only correction I can make to that is the FACT that Zimmerman was inside his vehicle when he called the dispatcher from his cell phone. He didn't even know the address of where he parked his truck.(Remember the reported "open door" chime sounding when he opened his vehicle door and the "sound of wind against his cell phone mic" after he left his vehicle?). However, like you, I am glad all the evidence will be presented to the jurors and hope people on both sides will accept their verdict without second guessing their decision. Obviously, not everyone is going to be happy with the decision.
